Description

On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Alex Butler joins Kevin Kinnally and Michael Sanderson to discuss the fate of the "bag ban" bill from the 2020 legislative session. We also discuss the surprising connection between the bill and the COVID-19 pandemic.HB 209/ SB 313 - Plastic Bag Reduction Act, would have prohibited retailers from providing customers with certain plastic carryout bags and required retailers to collect 10 cents for every “durable bag” they provide. However, the bill would also have needlessly preempted incoming or already established bag ban programs in Baltimore City and Howard and Montgomery Counties and in practice prohibit any other county from establishing such a program. MACo has made the podcast available through both iTunes and Google Play Music by searching Conduit Street Podcast.
